Srinagar, Feb 14: Reacting sharply to the murderous assault on Kashmiri students in Raipur Chhattisgarh, AIP President Er Rasheed has said that the only reason Kashmiris get “attacked” everywhere is because of their identity of being Kashmiris and Muslims.
In a statement, the spokesman said that being a Muslim or a Kashmiri has become a crime in India and there is no guarantee to safety if a Kashmiri travels outside his native place and travelling even to Jammu has become an issue for them.
When Kashmiris get attacked outside the concern governments and the security agencies often downplay the incidents and without giving a damn to the complaints of Kashmiris, authorities every time try to distort the facts, but when a similar incident takes place in Kashmir, even unintentionally, from National Media to politicians everyone makes hue and cry.
The helplines created by the state government and other measures claimed to have been taken for the welfare of Kashmiris students studying outside Kashmir have proved nothing except false hopes and Kashmiris continue to suffer at the hands of Hindu radical elements.
Rasheed while expressing solidarity with the families of children who got injured in a mysterious blast in Pulwama demanded an impartial probe to find out the “real mystery” behind the painful incident.
